Hi I'm David George

I am an elementary school principal and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am an educator and elementary school principal. I enjoy virtually every sport, and as a family we have always enjoyed boating and water sports, basketball, and family outings such as picnics. In recent years, my newest focus and source of joy is that of being a grandfather to 10 delightful grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church when I was 21 and newly married to my high school sweetheart, Lorie. That decision has been the most significant decision of my life as being LDS has enriched my marriage of 36 years and has provided continuous opportunities for service and leadership development. Because the Church is family centered, it was key in helping us in raising our children and has proved to be a source of family unity. Among the most important principles that I have learned through the Church are the singular importance of marriage and family, service, and the importance of trying to live a moral life by trying to be Christ-like in my associations with others.

How I live my faith

I have been blessed to have been given many leadership opportunities through church service. Like most men in the church, I am also assigned to watch over, serve and teach several families in our ward to try and help them as needed. Without question, my most important responsibility in the Church is to try and be a loving and helpful husband, father and grandfather as we have been taught that the most important work one can do is within the walls of his own home and that no success can compensate for failure in the home.
